That rarest of visitors to Scotland's skies is putting in an appearance and it looks like it's here to stay for the time being.
So being the opportunists we are, we've pulled together a list of the best places for a spot of al fresco dining in Glasgow.
(85 Drygate, G4 0UT)
As a bar, brewery and a restaurant, Drygate is our favourite combination of fun things and in the summer sun it really comes into its own.
What more could you ask for? A massive array of refreshing craft beer from some of the country's (and the rest of the world's) best breweries, a spacious terrace and gourmet bar food that ranges from pork, chorizo and black pudding burgers to roast Border chicken breast and butternut gnocchi.
(67 Kilmarnock Road, Shawlands, G41 3YR)
It's not just the city centre that attracts foodies in their droves and in Shawlands, you have one of the southside's best places for food and drink (other than the almighty Strathbungo area of course).
Black Dove typify the change in the area that's seen the southside challenge for the attention lavished on Finnieston and the city centre.
Their outdoor dining area is a sun trap and with plenty of small dishes showcasing the best fine dining this side of the Clyde, you'll discover it's the perfect place for eating out and enjoying the sunshine with friends.
(182 Queen Margaret Dr, Glasgow G20 8NX)
The recently renovated Kelbourne Saint boasts a massive outdoor area with heated outdoor huts for when the sun inevitably goes down (or away - it is Scotland) and there's even a children's play area to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy a brew from West Brewery’s first and only tank beer system which serves Kained Holdings’s very own beer Apache Pilsner.
As for scran, guests can enjoy delights such as herb-fed chicken, roast pineapple and suckling pig, all made in the Saint's customer-facing rotisserie.

(9 Gordon Street, Glasgow, Lanarkshire G1 3PL)
Chances are that if you've been in town working on a warm day, you've stared in jealousy at the people enjoying a bite to eat in the Beir Halle's excellent little external dining and drinking section.
With two-for-one pizzas, a free German Bratwurst hotdog with any jug of bier, and more German beers than you can shake a stein glass at, it's the perfect place to while away an afternoon in the sunshine.
(Templeton Building, Glasgow Green, Glasgow G40 1AW)
The classic answer for anyone looking for either one of the best beer gardens or places to eat outside in the city. West on the Green has become famed for its onsite brewery, friendly bar staff, beautiful location (the stunning Templeton building) and excellent German-themed food (currywurst anyone?) but it's in their dog friendly, spacious and literally right on the Green outdoor space that everyone really knows the place for.
One of the most popular sites for weegies on a warm day on the east side of the city, it's the perfect place for a spot of lunch be that regular or liquid.
(1125 Argyle St, G3 8ND)
As one of the hippest bar restaurant combos in the west end, The Finnieston is renowned for its cocktails and food offering.
With its very own garden tucked away down the alley between The Finnieston and sister restaurant, Porter & Rye, away from the hustle and bustle of Argyle Street, it's the perfect place to hide away and bask in that glorious sunshine.
Featuring wooden picnic benches, outdoor heaters and hanging baskets, it's the perfect place to enjoy fresh ethically sourced, seasonal Scottish seafood alfresco, or sip a G&T created from the bar's expertly curated selection of gins.
And if you're lucky they may even crack out the barbie!
